Park Description

The Ojibwe co-name for Chambers Grove Park is Nagaajiwanaang.

Fond du Lac’s Chambers Grove along the St. Louis River first became a popular picnic site the 1870s when it was still the home of Emily and Michael Chambers. From the 1880s until the 1940s steam-powered excursion boats ferried picnickers from downtown Duluth to Fond du Lac. The park underwent reconstruction after the 2012 floods and today contains a picnic pavilion, grills, an interpretive walking trail, and access to the river and the Duluth Traverse mountain bike trail.

Permanent restrooms open for season.
